Parole decisions. Qualifying for welfare. Parking tickets. Predictions of criminal recidivism. Landlord and tenant disputes. Are we ready for a world in which decisions that have traditionally been made by human judges are made by algorithms? How, if at all, do models of judicial accountability map onto an environment in which rights-allocating decisions are the product of technological processes? Do transparency, reviewability and independence mean that we must always have a "human in the loop"? Drawing on the judicial accountability model of Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin, this talk explores how we might confront the need for accountability in legal decisions when humans have delegated the task to algorithms.
